Resumen de la sesión:


Microorganism can be found in every habitat on Earth being approximately 10 times as many bacterial cells as human cells, in the human body. But, the lack of knowledge regarding natural background prevalence in diverse environments limits our understanding of implications of their prevalence on both, human and ecosystem health. Antibiotic resistance has recently been identified as an emerging environmental contaminant. And, bacterial biofilms are serious global health concern due to their capacity to tolerate antibiotics or host defence systems contributing to persistent chronic infections. Besides, biofilm is a complex structure of microbiome.

The presentations outlines our current state of knowledge under the One Health concept. The speakers bring to us the last advances from different viewpoints of knowledge using “omic” approaches to better understand the global interconnections among environment and resistance transmission to our own host-immunity, even. This webinar covers big concerns as resistance transmission, biofilm resistance evolution, in relation to resistome, mostly using genomics but supported by mass spectrometry approaches, such as proteomic and metabolomic, in order to deep understand the own microbe evolution.
